The world has enough for everyone’s need, but not enough for everyone’s greed,” said Mahatma Gandhi, a peaceful, yet inspirational, figure of Indian independence. one particular sin evident in our world today is greed. Greed is defined as an excessive desire to possess wealth or goods. The greed that exists in our world leads people to unhappy and selfish lives. Greed is evident through individual people, corporate companies and in our governments.
Greed means selfish on desire beyond reason.Greed is not merely " I want more". Greed is "I want more than everybody else".What most people want is money, lots of money, tons of money, along with the tons of things that it buys, along with the prestige that comes with having tons of money, along with the mass attention that comes along with it. As people need more money, it is not enough that they work hard at a full-time job. If they come up with a bunch of money games, and if they become very good at them, then they believe that they should be entitled to out earn their neighbors suddenly by double their amount, or triple or ten times, etc. There will be much lying, cheating, backstabbing and suffering as there needs to be until they obtain their needs.
greed can never be satisfied.a person is never happy.he wants more and more.when he cannot get more power and wealth by honesty,he chooses to take the wrong path to get more power and wealth.sometimes,the mans career gets destroyed just because of this greed.greed is a very dangerous thing.it virtually kills.
Nobody wants to be with a destructive person. Hence a greedy person becomes lonely & loses ties with people around him. A greedy person fails to understand relationships should be far more valued than wealth. True happiness could not be purchased at any cost but it has to be earned. The consequences of greed differ the way you think. All greed is not equal. Your greed to earn more and losing your job is not good but your greed to earn more and work hard can give you promotion. So it’s good.
In short, it's a system that destroys the very values we pretend to honor, if not fully observe. Greed is one of the few forces strong enough to tear apart such a highly developed society as ours.
